Garcia, I mean. Today was just one of those days. It occurred to me that I was way overdue for a Dead show. I suppose that's not happening anytime soon...

I feel your pain brother. If you are partial to the 80s and ok with AUDs, then check out this new Charlie Miller release. Sound is good and the big man is jamming.

---EDIT---
After further review...
I poked around at the other offerings for the Saratoga Springs show. My conclusion is that I like this one the best:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1983-06-18.set2.senn441.silberman.miller.103293.flac16

Why?
I believe it is the only digital recording of the show, early on in the digital era. Silberman only recorded the 2nd set due to difficulties getting his recording equipment into the show. Because he only recorded the second set he was able to tape it without any cuts. All other copies have a cut in them and are usually patched with this source or the previous release of it (id 21741).

In the notes Charlie lists this as the "Best Morning Dew ever!!" We all have our preferences, but this MD does not disappoint.

agree, and Jer's first Scarlet solo just keeps going and going...

fun show, always wondered why there are no sbd's for the whole June 83 tour (?) could it be GD multi-tracked these shows in an effort to appease Arista for the last album they reneged on (Dead Set and Reckoning was accepted by Arista as the 4th of the total of 5 under their contract, the 5th was partially recorded in the studio early 83, then abandoned by the band...)

Mickey and Phil are fighting over Bobby, who is wearing my daughter's favorite shirt.

Thanks for the cool pic!

Nope. Didn't make it up - ended up at Squaw Valley skiing for a week straight from Christmas Eve through New Year's Eve (but did have the boys, Ryan, Drivin N Cryin, Mudcrutch, and others playing in my ears while I hit the slopes). Heard it was a great time.

I hope you've seen that a number have carried on in your absence vis-a-vis your French Kissin Cousin...

Nice to have you back, if we do.

NAH! Here and there. ACC Season has begun, so energies focused elsewhere. Our team is a joy to watch - because it's team ball.

being as I never went to a GD New Year show (only to every post Jerry one).

12/31/2009 was THE BEST post Jerry show - I include P&F, TOO & The Dead, I've ever heard.Period!

Now then, P&F with Trey, The "Love Will See You Thru" Warfield & the one with Billy on drums are right up there. Maybe it was the ahhhh..atmosphere, but live, this NYshow ROCKED!!

Indeed! This is a nice upgrade over the previous Senns sources until the SBDs make their appearance.

I think we all, at least those here at LMA GD Forum wish Jerry was still alive. But as stated, he IS alive and well here at the archive, and in the hearts of those who continue to listen to his inimitable guitar stylings.

This seems like a prototypical 80s show but with almost 22 minutes of Playing in the Band. Too bad it's AUD only.

Is there anything similar pre-coma 80s but SBD?

Also, did Dr Flashback ever make a best of the 80s? I remember some best of lists threads but they seemed to end by '78.

Look out of any window
Any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
Birds are winging, no rain is falling from a heavy sky
What do you want me to do
To do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago

Walk out of any doorway
Feel your way like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
Around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you
What do you want me to do
To watch for you while you're sleeping?
Then please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
You find by you; you can see clear to another day
Maybe been seen before
Through other eyes on other days while going home
What do you want me to do
To do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land
Maybe you're tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
To do for you, to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through

Just a box of rain, wind and water
Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower, wind and rain
In and out the window like a moth before a flame

And it's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare
And it's just a box of rain, or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there
